Storybox Parramatta is a virtual storytelling platform that showcases imaginative stories of Parramatta’s past, present and future.
Installed in Parramatta Square in October 2020, Storybox Parramatta is Australia’s first interactive digital storytelling box, connecting people with real-life stories and artworks about Parramatta through time.
Storybox Parramatta is a two-metre multimedia solar-powered cube that uses high-resolution LED panels to stream visual stories created by the community and footage from the ABC Archives.
Council is a key partner in the Storybox initiative which features archival footage, dance performances and video art. The project was led by ESEM Projects in collaboration with ABC Content Ideas Lab, Western Sydney University, Story Factory, FORM Dance Projects, Sam I Am and Curious Works.
